Stampin Up, Pals Paper Arts Sketch challenge #288

I decided to do a chalk board effect on this card, but it's not showing up will. You can see just a little in the center of the sentiment.  I was afraid to go too much with it, but it did need a little more I think.

My sentiment today came from the Suite sayings set in the 2016 Occasions catalog.  You have until May 31 to purchase from this catalog, but only until March 31st to also get free goodies from the SAB catalog for every $50 you sepend in any other current catalog. 

I used the Pool Party glitter ribbon from the Holiday catalog (retired) over my strip of black.  And I used my dots embossing folder for a little more texture. 

I first stamped my sentiment with VersaMark ink, then embossed using Whisper White embossing powder. I cut that out using the 2" circle punch, added it to a slighter larger circle in Smoky Slate that was cut using the Circle framelit dies,  then I cut another scalloped circle with my 2 3/8's punch.  I cut that in half and put part on top and part on bottom for a little different look.

It's a pretty clean and simple card, and I like that it can be used for either male or female.  I seem to make most of my cards very  flowery, I need to do more masculine cards to have on hand.

Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been doing.
